Empowering Educational Leaders: Why The Holdsworth Center Matters

Dr. Pauline Dow

The Fort Bend Chamber of Commerce’s Education Division will host an informative event where participants will learn how The Holdsworth Center is empowering educational leaders. This session, moderated by Jim Rice, FBCC Education Division Chair, will be held Tuesday, December 14, 2021 at the Fort Bend Chamber office, 445 Commerce Green Blvd., Sugar Land, TX 77478 from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. This event is generously sponsored by Rice & Gardner Consultants, Inc.

Join us as Dr. Pauline Dow, Vice President of the Holdsworth Center, speaks on the vision, mission, and approach, as well as informing us how investing in leadership pays off. Driven by the belief that great leaders can push student achievement levels to new heights, they partner with Texas public school districts to help educators become experts at leadership, then grow stronger leaders within their own systems. The leaders in this organization understand the importance of building strong pipelines and creating opportunities for growth.

“There is no shortcut and no silver bullet. If we want to get to the root of making long-term, sustainable improvements to public education, we’ve got to invest the time to go deep within our districts.” – Charles Butt, Founder of The Holdsworth Center.
